£1000 on a PC
did I miss the network card ?

and its just for games, nothing else.

the IceQ boost, is near top of the line, just wondering if we have any similar games in our steam collections, so I could load on my non-boost 7950 (gigabyte windforce x3) to see what the fps is. With a 7950 you should be able to max all the game settings and still get 60+fps.

The i5 can be overclocked very easy, 4.2 to 4.5ghz is feasible, especially on that cooler which is near silent. If you want to push 5ghz you would have to think about changing socket and cooler, which will bump the price a lot.

What resolution is your monitor?
network port will be built into the motherboard, which is standard these days, but the board I selected does NOT have wifi.
I will be using my 51" 1080P tv

oh, it will need HDMI out for sound and gfx,
my laptop does that through the one cable so I assume this would do that as well

it will be placed next to my router so wifi not needed,

and I guess it can be added easy at a later date if needed

rejigged the ssd to a slightly cheaper model and changed the motherboard to one that is in stock, allowing me to add a 2TB drive to the mix, oh and theres £15 cashback on the ssd.
why are u forcing this SSD on me, lol
[Image: fs_overall.png]
it will perform so much better with an ssd, but the choice is yours

and why is that case boring looking,

can't I have something that lights up and stuff?
[Image: fs_overall.png]
ofcourse you can, that case has some nifty cable management, but generally I find that lights inside computers, just annoy me after awhile.
Cases: You don't want boring - look at Thermaltake (I have one)

if i went for the top one , will that take all the parts spanky listed?
[Image: fs_overall.png]
its a full tower, so yes, there will be oodles of space inside the case. NZXT Phantom is also a popular choice.

If you are going to drop the sdd, change the hdd to this
will perform much faster.
